    Demystifying a PED Technical File



Webinar 1: A Snapshot of the Pressure Equipment Directive

Thursday, September 24, 2020 | 10 a.m. (CDT)

Compliance to the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) is mandatory for pressure equipment manufacturers to market products within the European Union. Join UL experts for an overview of PED and learn how combining overlapping requirements in one project can result in UL, cUL and PED certification to streamline market access. This reduces overall certification costs while maximizing access to North American and European markets.

This webinar will help you answer the following questions:

  • What is the scope of the PED?
  • What type of products does it cover?
  • How do I select a risk category?
  • What is the PED certification process?
  • What are the potential barriers and solutions?


Webinar 2: Demystifying a PED Technical File

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 | 10 a.m. (CDT)

In order to gain authorization to apply the CE Mark, Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) manufacturers are usually required to collect all applicable information related to the pressure equipment and submit to the Notified Body. Compiling an effective databook and providing the correct technical information can involve rework and thus be a complex and daunting task.

Join this webinar to help get clarity on the following questions:

  • What is a technical file or databook?
  • What information should a technical file contain?
  • When is a design technical file applicable?
  • When is a manufacturing technical file applicable?
  • What is an appropriate format for a technical file?
